17303
German WW1 Pickelhaube M1915 issued to artillery troops, here Hessen artie troops.
This late model pickelhaube was made with dull gray metal as an actual attempt at camouflage and cost-saving (and saving the time of the troops from not polishing the brass bits on their hats). Furthermore, gray cloth covers were fitted over the pickelhaubes. In 1916, the German army issued metal 'coal scuttle' style helmets that actually offered protection against blows, weak bullets and artillery fragments.

And apparently lancer cavalry was issued pickelhaubes with flat mortar boards on top. Like they just graduated university or something. Or use 'em as a flat surface to write dispatches on them.

So is this a Prussian Landwehr Pickelhaube? Unusual fluted and child-proofed spike.

Turn of the Century German Pickelhaube with large Prussian crowned eagle emblem with a "W" on the chest of the bird, beautiful brass point with ball top and indented sides, original scaled chin strap, most likely all the brass elements were gilt with evidence still on the emblem, boiled leather body with patent surface. http://www.thecobbs.com/auction-2013-07-06-lot-392.html

That one there is a Customs, due to the circular base on the spike.

That said, no, the flutted spike always denoted it's a civilian authority; and no military unit ever carried the royal monogram; That was reserved specifically for civilian institutions.

German Feldgendarmerie always wore gorgets to represent their MP status.

Near mint Government issue 1917 revolver 1917 production. With model 1917 issue lanyard included. All matched numbers, 99% finish. Really hard to beat! Only defect is on right grip panel by swivel, there is some storage dings. This pistol shows no sign of being used. This pistol is still in all World War One finish and configuration. The pistol rig is World War Two 1942 date. The holster is by Tex Tan 1942, the first aid kit is J.Q.M.D. 1942 with the original brass sealed canister for the bandage. The clip pouch is by Gregory & Reed Co. 11- 18. The belt is also dated 1942, however it is hard to read. All accessories appear to be in unused condition. This rig makes for a really nice display! All accessories are correct issue for this model 1917 Colt as would have been issued in 1942. http://www.harryviezensfineguns.com/hand-guns/colt-model-1917-revolver/
